Express Sessions

Exciting news!!! I am adding express sessions to the timetable and recorded library.

This means there are sessions, mostly, but not exclusively, 15 minutes so you can fit them easier into your busy schedules. Sometimes finding an extra hour can feel too demanding on the already stressful demands of our day. So you can be guilt free and jump straight on in for a 15 minute session :

weighted workout, Cardio Crush, Ab-tastic, Barre, Leg & Butt, Breathe and Calm, Meditate, Self massage releases for shoulders, necks etc, Stretch and Release,

As an integral teacher they will be drawn in from many practices- Yoga, STOTT Pilates, GARUDA, Franklin Method, Bodywork, coming at it from an integral approach of Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit, so much more than just movement. Please see the timetable below for regular live zoom sessions.

You also have the recorded library of over 300 sessions on the private Facebook members page , that keeps growing!!!

Something for everyone, including specialist sessions.

So why not join us, feel the difference, be the difference, live the difference.

I look forward to see you!

if you would like more information please get in touch

Happy 2022- January Studio Wellbeing Bootcamp

Bootcamp Studio- all classes in the zoom live for only £50 for all of January – Yoga, Pilates, Garuda and more

Happy 2022 everyone, are you also overwhelmed of how time just disappears over the last few years?

I have to admit, I have been way too over indulgent this December, eating my bodyweight in chocolate!! I don’t do the alcohol so that’s a relief. I have always had to fight with myself with being addicted to sugar, and some times I get it right and feel amazing then somehow go down that slippery slope again of being a sugar, but mostly chocolate addict. And if you know me you know I mean addict!

Well, I am trying again form the start of this public message to try again to get on the right track, so my bones don’t hurt form the sugar, have you ever noticed that? I have but only since menopause though (as never ever hurt or ached, even when I was a triathlete, I had boundless energy, strength, drive) when I cut out all carbs, no pain or aches and I don’t have to click my foot or back. So even though I know and feel this I still struggle to do it, it is so ridiculous.

I would love to know your views and experiences and how you manage, so do share as we can all help each other out.

So this January I am offering you a Wellbeing Bootcamp month for only £50

this gives you access to ALL LIVE sessions through January. this is a minimum of 36 sessions

over the month you will have

Power 45, Garuda Flow, Garuda and Pilates Barre, Pilates with props, Pilates Mat with focus on core, supple spine, legs and butt, repertoire etc, Restorative Reset, Yoga Flow, Yoga Chill, Meditation and a few bonus sessions thrown in including a talk with a special guest.

if you would like to be added to the membership program and be able to do the recordings also, this is an extra £10 per studio membership , either the Pilates Studio or Yoga Studio

What better time to start, with something for everyone, as many as you chose that suit where you are, with lots of detailed cuing, embodying and learning, being inspired and encouraged to move well in a supportive guiding way.

I would love you to join us so please get in touch and hope to see you in the live studio soon.

Suitable for beginners to advanced including teachers

Let’s feel good together!

May – beautiful May ☀️☀️☀️🏖🤸🏻‍♀️

Seriously I cannot believe how the months are flying by, I guess with my online studio and privates plus the 200 and 300 hour Yoga training, and the 3 sound therapy courses, plus a renovation project, designing and organising the orders, I shouldn’t be surprised I have skipped time or maybe expanding time???!!!

I must admit I am loving doing it all but also will really appreciate taking some time off for summer. Talking of summer how amazing has the weather been, I already feel like its summer, loving this. Thank you thank you thank you !

Have you been crazy busy? Learning new skills? or enjoying taking it a bit slower? or maybe not enjoying taking it slower?

Excitingly there are 2 Bank Holidays, I am going to make a promise to myself to not do one bit of work, even answer an email! 😂 My husband would be amazed if that happened.

Do you have any plans?

I hope to walk my fur baby on the beach and chill with my husband maybe drinking a coffee or two.

April, well hello there!!

Spring and Easter is right here and I feel like how did that happen?

The sun has been kind and have enjoyed the odd break to feel a little of the sun rays on my face in-between my schedules. Restrictions are being lifted and people are starting to appear in the streets and beaches.

How do you feel about that?

Does it fill you with apprehension or joy?

Life has changed, people are choosing new ways to approach things and we are all still finding our feet.

I know lots of things have changed for me, and it is partly scary and partly exciting, as what will unfold.

I have no idea and I can only go with the flow and see what reveals itself, as they say one door has to shut for another to open, and whether that’s instant or slow and takes time I shall endeavour to know it will all be ok!

April term is all ready to go, with Pilates, Garuda, Franklin Method and Power Hour on the payment plan and Meditation and Yoga are available as pay as you go or a course, please enquire.

May is being worked on with hopefully some early morning Yoga slotted in to start your day the right way before work or a day entertains the children, grandchildren or yourselves.

May Coastal Retreat is FULLY BOOKED and hopefully will go ahead, 4 had to be cancelled over the last 12 months so I am excited for this to go ahead, to share time and space with beautiful people.

I shall be planning another for October/November in North Devon if you would like to be notified please get in touch.

SoundBaths are being scheduled along the way with different flavours and themes. on line aswell as in life realtime, yayyyy so excited to share these with you.

Private sessions available in live in my Woolacombe Studio, online and also monthly in Bristol starting soon.

So everyone, lets keeping hoping and being positive that we can move forward, we can see loved ones again, we can a coffee time, dinner, and even cuddles in the near future.

love to all

February 2021

It is getting lighter in the evenings, daffodils are starting to peek through the ground, and there is a feeling of new beginnings. Right now we are amongst confusion and an unknowingness that we have never experienced before, together. There are opportunities for all of us to grow. We have an opportunity to learn from everything that unfolds around us, however trivial to however traumatic. Can you resonate with that? Or do you get lost in the fear of it? I encourage you to look deeply, to ask questions to yourself, to be curious with life and at the same time be kind to you and go gently. It is a wonderful practice to see life this way, to step out of the drama of life, to find a little separation and space . And to remind ourselves of impermanence. Nothing stays the same, everything changes, however wonderful or however hard things may feel, things change, you will change, your body, all your cells, your thoughts, your perceptions. Don’t get stuck in the stories we tell ourselves, we always have a choice, how we react, how we see, feel, think. How does that concept make you feel? Explore your answer!

Yesterday I was part of a lovely online Yoga Retreat creating a wonderful relaxing sound bath journey. Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday on a cold chilly day. I am running a Valentines Retreat Saturday 13 February with the lovely Juliette Grove. we would love you to join us, we have a few spaces left so do get in touch.

You will have get to enjoy Pilates and Garuda, plus a nutrition talk, a questions and answers session plus a sound bath journey to finish the day. We are offering this day at a very discounted rate to help you get through lockdown. To give yourself some nourishment through movement, mind and sound. And as the last retreat proved you can feel just as nourished joining us on line from the comfort of your own home, you don’t need much space just enough to lie your mat down, so come and escape to within with us, we would really love to share time with you, we are both super passionate and compassionate teachers with a big sense of reality and lightness.

So please get in touch if you would like more information of book your space.

February term

4 weeks of live classes, (8 per week) moving mindbodysoul

You will also gain access to a r private Facebook page with a recorded library of well over 100 classes. So even if your times do not suit the timetable you will be able to pick up a live recorded class or 10!!! Links to my meditations on insight timer plus bonuses.

Please note the session title are the main frame but each session is an integral practice using many disciplines of wellbeing , and each session is different from the next.

Garuda and Barre/Chair is more like a Yoga Flow Practice.

Reset is restoring mind body, through various disciplines of Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Bodywork, Franklin Method.

Drop in session £15 Month Pass £50

Take a Moment -A little bit of self care

Stop, take a pause,

Notice your breath,

Notice the air you breathe,

Listen with your ears more receptive, notice all the sounds you hear around you with enlivened newness

Look with your eyes more open, notice the colours with a new awareness

Notice the smells around you,

Just noticing, can you notice without judgement?

Can you notice without attachment?

Can you just be present to the nowness, just for this moment?

Take a beautifully refreshing breath in and take a deep rooted sigh out,

Be comfortable with whatever is arising,

just sit with it,

no judging, no wishing for change,

not clinging on to its story,

just be.

Have a lovely day and hope to see you in the zoom room.

one to one coaching and training available. Please enquire
